Every 5 - 10 minutes any game I play lags

Specs: Windows 7
Okay so here's the problem, whenever I play ANY game it lags after around 5 - 10 minutes for about 20 or so seconds and then the problem persists like it's in a loop. It plays pretty much perfectly for those first 5 minutes and i've had this problem for a while but i have only started playing games on my pc again. I've had my computer for 2 years-ish and I never had problems like this when i first had it. I'm running on windows 7 (32 bit) sp1, AMD athlon 64 X2 dual core processor 5200+ 2.70 GHz, 4 gig (only 3.2 usable) and my graphics card is Geforce 9500 GT. Not the best but all the games (half life 2, Total war etc.) (this even happens when i play minecraft :() These games all use to play completely fine on my computer until the whole lag thing started happening. Help? please :D

Oh I've tried defragging, searching for viruses, I used the memory diagnostic tool and found
nothing, I've cleaned out my graphics card and fans etc. of all dust and made sure it's nice and cool in there and nothing is over heating, i've updated my drivers etc etc. I've done loads and to no avail =\

this driver release is only 2 months ago, might be worth a shot
